- CeeDee Lamb is one of the best well-rounded young wide receivers: Lamb has improved each season and is still only 24 years old.
- Lamb will have different teammates around him: The Dallas Cowboys added veteran Brandin Cooks while letting a number of other players leave in free agency.
- Mike McCarthy is the new play-caller: If McCarthy changes the offense to be a little more similar to his old Green Bay Packers teams, then Lamb has the potential to put up even bigger numbers.
- Cincinnati Bengals WR Tee Higgins (78.6 PFF offense grade): His 2022 performance, growing injury history and target competition make him a risky fantasy football draft pick.
- Pittsburgh Steelers RB Najee Harris (73.5 PFF offense grade): His inefficient play and talented backup create unignorable problems for 2023.
- Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers (80.7 PFF offense grade): His late-season production was inflated by easily-winnable matchups.
- Cam Akers is finally the unquestioned starter: Akers is coming off three straight 100-yard games and is in the best situation of his NFL career.
- Javonte Williams should be excellent if healthy: His new head coach Sean Payton has a history of top-five fantasy running backs. Williams should get there eventually, but his health is the big question.
- One back from the 2022 draft class: Several running backs from the 2022 class have earned starting jobs, but one, in particular, could have a huge season in 2023 after a quieter 2022.
- Betting on health: Breece Hall wouldn’t be considered a darkhorse if we knew he was fully healthy, and if he is, then he’s the best bet to finish as RB1 going outside the top 10 RBs.
- A need to have his best season at 27 years old: Like Austin Ekeler last year, can a slightly older workhorse running back like Joe Mixon break through with RB1 potential?
- Jahmyr Gibbs could surprise as a rookie: If he’s able to steal away rushing opportunities in combination with what he can do as a receiver, there’s a path to RB1.
